Our team knows that effective maintenance of traffic provides safe, reliable and continuous traffic flow. We have developed a comprehensive traffic management plan that addresses the complexity of the I-4 Ultimate project while also minimizing impacts to the traveling public. Intelligent transportation systems and the Regional Traffic Management Center will play a key role in managing traffic, and you can read more about these two tools in this section.
How Intelligent Transportation Systems Are Transforming TravelIntelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) bring together many technologies to improve traffic conditions on Florida’s interstates and other major highways. ITS integrates a broad range of wireless and hard-wired communications devices, including live traffic cameras, roadside sensors and dynamic message signs. ITS, operated through regional traffic management centers, helps monitor and manage traffic flow, reduce congestion and provide alternate routes to travelers.
Florida’s statewide ITS program, SunGuide, allows centers around the state to communicate with one another in times of emergency and heavy traffic.
The real-time ITS information collected is used by law enforcement, Road Rangers and emergency responders to respond to incidents and determine how best to improve traffic flow.
